Forum rules and no-advertising policy

As a participant on this forum, it is your responsibility to know and follow our rules. Please read this message in its entirety.

Board Rules

1. You’re responsible for what you say.
As outlined in Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, The Chronicle of the Horse and its affiliates, as well Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd., the developers of vBulletin, are not legally responsible for statements made in the forums.

This is a public forum viewed by a wide spectrum of people, so please be mindful of what you say and who might be reading it—details of personal disputes are likely better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts that violate these rules. Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting, but administrators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts upon request.

Outright inflammatory, vulgar, harassing, malicious or otherwise inappropriate statements and criminal charges unsubstantiated by a reputable news source or legal documentation will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

2. Conversations in horse-related forums should be horse-related.
The forums are a wonderful source of information and support for members of the horse community. While it’s understandably tempting to share information or search for input on other topics upon which members might have a similar level of knowledge, members must maintain the focus on horses.

3. Keep conversations productive, on topic and civil.
Discussion and disagreement are inevitable and encouraged; personal insults, diatribes and sniping comments are unproductive and unacceptable. Whether a subject is light-hearted or serious, keep posts focused on the current topic and of general interest to other participants of that thread. Utilize the private message feature or personal email where appropriate to address side topics or personal issues not related to the topic at large.

4. No advertising in the discussion forums.
Posts in the discussion forums directly or indirectly advertising horses, jobs, items or services for sale or wanted will be removed at the discretion of the moderators. Use of the private messaging feature or email addresses obtained through users’ profiles for unsolicited advertising is not permitted.

Company representatives may participate in discussions and answer questions about their products or services, or suggest their products on recent threads if they fulfill the criteria of a query. False "testimonials" provided by company affiliates posing as general consumers are not appropriate, and self-promotion of sales, ad campaigns, etc. through the discussion forums is not allowed.

Paid advertising is available on our classifieds site and through the purchase of banner ads. The tightly monitored Giveaways forum permits free listings of genuinely free horses and items available or wanted (on a limited basis). Items offered for trade are not allowed.

Advertising Policy Specifics
When in doubt of whether something you want to post constitutes advertising, please contact a moderator privately in advance for further clarification. Refer to the following points for general guidelines:

Horses – Only general discussion about the buying, leasing, selling and pricing of horses is permitted. If the post contains, or links to, the type of specific information typically found in a sales or wanted ad, and it’s related to a horse for sale, regardless of who’s selling it, it doesn’t belong in the discussion forums.

Stallions – Board members may ask for suggestions on breeding stallion recommendations. Stallion owners may reply to such queries by suggesting their own stallions, only if their horse fits the specific criteria of the original poster. Excessive promotion of a stallion by its owner or related parties is not permitted and will be addressed at the discretion of the moderators.

Services – Members may use the forums to ask for general recommendations of trainers, barns, shippers, farriers, etc., and other members may answer those requests by suggesting themselves or their company, if their services fulfill the specific criteria of the original post. Members may not solicit other members for business if it is not in response to a direct, genuine query.

Products – While members may ask for general opinions and suggestions on equipment, trailers, trucks, etc., they may not list the specific attributes for which they are in the market, as such posts serve as wanted ads.

Event Announcements – Members may post one notification of an upcoming event that may be of interest to fellow members, if the original poster does not benefit financially from the event. Such threads may not be “bumped” excessively. Premium members may post their own notices in the Event Announcements forum.

Charities/Rescues – Announcements for charitable or fundraising events can only be made for 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations. Special exceptions may be made, at the moderators’ discretion and direction, for board-related events or fundraising activities in extraordinary circumstances.

Occasional posts regarding horses available for adoption through IRS-registered horse rescue or placement programs are permitted in the appropriate forums, but these threads may be limited at the discretion of the moderators. Individuals may not advertise or make announcements for horses in need of rescue, placement or adoption unless the horse is available through a recognized rescue or placement agency or government-run entity or the thread fits the criteria for and is located in the Giveaways forum.

5. Do not post copyrighted photographs unless you have purchased that photo and have permission to do so.

6. Respect other members.
As members are often passionate about their beliefs and intentions can easily be misinterpreted in this type of environment, try to explore or resolve the inevitable disagreements that arise in the course of threads calmly and rationally.

If you see a post that you feel violates the rules of the board, please click the “alert” button (exclamation point inside of a triangle) in the bottom left corner of the post, which will alert ONLY the moderators to the post in question. They will then take whatever action, or no action, as deemed appropriate for the situation at their discretion. Do not air grievances regarding other posters or the moderators in the discussion forums.

Please be advised that adding another user to your “Ignore” list via your User Control Panel can be a useful tactic, which blocks posts and private messages by members whose commentary you’d rather avoid reading.

7. We have the right to reproduce statements made in the forums.
The Chronicle of the Horse may copy, quote, link to or otherwise reproduce posts, or portions of posts, in print or online for advertising or editorial purposes, if attributed to their original authors, and by posting in this forum, you hereby grant to The Chronicle of the Horse a perpetual, non-exclusive license under copyright and other rights, to do so.

8. We reserve the right to enforce and amend the rules.
The moderators may delete, edit, move or close any post or thread at any time, or refrain from doing any of the foregoing, in their discretion, and may suspend or revoke a user’s membership privileges at any time to maintain adherence to the rules and the general spirit of the forum. These rules may be amended at any time to address the current needs of the board.

Please see our full Terms of Service and Privacy Policy for more information.

Thanks for being a part of the COTH forums!

  • Horse from "Turning for home" & NJ TB Rescue found at Auction- Shipping $$ needed

    Sorry if this was a repeat.... but this critter (big bay gelding, http://www.ac4h.com/ac4havailablehorses.htm) looked lovely so I looked at his pedigree (instead of studying) and found this:
    " Owner: Faitte Farm
    Breeder: Giles Cook
    State Bred: PA
    Winnings: 6 Starts: 1 - 2 - 1, $50,838

    Sold through New Holland auction, purchased by Pa. broker for slaughter. Former Philadelphia Park, Turning for Home Program, owner donated horse that was placed with South Jersey TB Retirement by the Philadelphia Park Turning for Home Program. Saved from the broker lot just prior to shipping to slaughter April 23rd, 2010 by AC4H Rescue. Will not be returning to Turning for Home OR South Jersey TB Retirement.

    Foaled May 30, 2003
    Updated 09/08/07"

    WAY TO GO AC4H. This is why we STILL need rescues in the kill pens.
    The horse looks lovely... a little nervous under saddle but wouldn't you be if you've been through the same garbage he has. Any takers?

    ETA: A Cother has offered a home- read on about how you can help.

        I feel for the horse but am not surprised if South Jersey TB was involved.

        Not to drudge up the past, but they were absolutely awful to deal with back with my whole debacle.

        I hope the horse gets the home he deserves!!

        Edited to add: I just looked up his pedigree. I havent seen another horse with Rollicking in it. I have one very lovely horse who just turned 13 since he was 3 by Rollicking.

          hes a very nice looking TB so thats a great pull by AC4H!! he's going to make someone a lovely project!

            bump for this really nice critter who needs a home

              I don't think that first video is of him. The third one is though, and he looks quiet and rhythmic. Very nice boy! I'm also not surprised by the rescues involved.
              Please don't try to be a voice of reason. It's way more fun to spin things out of control. #BecauseCOTH - showhorsegallery

                Oh my lord, I didn't look at the third video. Wow. He is LOVELY.


                How I wish there was room in the feed budget for one more... and the time to ride, too

                  What a lovely boy.

                  I could give him a permanent home,my pony is very lonely on his own.

                  But I cant afford to ship him ect,ect.

                  Hope he gets the loving permanent home he surely deserves..

                    FP, I thought the same thing. That canter has 'hunter ring' all over it. He is a very cute mover, and threw in a flying change at the end. Very cute horse.

                    If you had him, you'd have to get another horse and name it "Bullwinkle", of course.

                      Not sure I understand. Are you saying the owner Turning for Home donated the horse to South Jersey TB after it was purchased from a broker who bought the horse New Holland?

                      Then South Jersey TB sold it again to a broker and that's where AC4H bought him?


                      • #12
                        Turning for home placed many of their donated horses with the NJ rescue. The NJ rescue then adopted them out to people who sent the horses to New Holland. This is not the first time it has happened. I am not positive but I believe/hope that Turning for home has cut their ties with the NJ group.

                          Well...what can we do? Fernie do you want this horse? He is lovely. Been a while since we got together and made someone really happy - I'll donate the first $50.00 to shipping.

                          Anyone else?

                            As of a couple months ago, they were still working together:

                            Barbara Luna, who worked at another rescue, runs Turning for Home and has come on COTH to defend other horses that AC4H has found. It wasn't pretty.

                            EqTrainer, I love where you are going. I adore this horse- maybe next spring I can fit another in, but not right now. I wish that wasn't so, but I don't have time to ride the greenie at home now. This gelding is just lovely, and if he's sound, will probably go very far with a talented rider. I don't have any money to chip in for him, but do have lots of good karma.

                              If someone from COTH can give him a good home, I am happy to chip in for shipping.

                                I, too, will help with shipping. Please PM me when someone is willing to take him on.

                                  Last year another boarder at my barn got a horse off the track to keep it from going to New Holland. The horse needed at least six months of rest for a bowed tendon. The boarder knew someone at SJ TB and they said they would take the horse and give it the rest it needed. The boarder went back there to look at horses to adopt for jumping and they put her on a horse that was dead lame at the walk. Then they wanted her to ride the same horse she donated less than two weeks ago. And adopt it for jumping.

                                  She was in awe of their guile and/or stupidity?

                                  I've heard many stories about Erin, none of them positive, mostly from equine professionals. Buyer beware.

                                      I wondered why Barbara L. was not commenting on this thread when she is posting on other forums... I guess if it happens regularly... I can see why she would keep a low profile, but that sure puts a black eye on her organization. Obviously, some reviews of her partners is needed. I remember the mess involving SJ. Ugh!!
